A Hurling Hex (incantation unknown) is a hex that can be applied to a broomstick. It presumably causes the broomstick to attempt to hurl its rider off.

HistoryEdit

In 1993, Filius Flitwick suggested that Harry Potter's confiscated Firebolt might have been hexed with this spell. The possibility was discovered while the broom was undergoing a stripping-down process, but it was apparently discovered to be free of this spell.

Behind the scenesEdit

  • In 1991, Quirinus Quirrell may have been casting wandless version of this spell on Harry Potter's broom during his first Quidditch match. However, it is stated that he was jinxing the broom, not hexing it. Additionally, it was implied that the Hurling Hex can be imbued on a broom, but the spell that Quirrell was casting required a continuous process and could be cast from a distance.
